First, I missed that this was a 3rd party refurb.
Came today, total malfunction on side 6" of screen. Visio remarkably helpful, but discovered this was not their refurb/no coverage.
Warranty reqires I ship it prepaid/insd to CA. Was quite bummed, and picture quality sucked big time. Turned it off to lick my wounds...
Turned it back on, it connected to wifi, downloaded a firmware update, and the flashing right side is now fine, pic better. So, hoping for the best, tho' worried a bit. (not sure if the firmware was the fix, but that was the sequence.)
And, no, it's not the remote w/the keyboard on the back.
